A commitment ceremony is similar to a wedding ceremony, but without the legal requirements. Some people do not wish to be married – and in some cases couples cannot be legally married – but they still wish to publicly declare their commitment to their partner. A commitment ceremony is a non-legal way to demonstrate your dedication and promises to each other in front of family and friends.
Renewal of vows ceremony
What a fabulous way to reaffirm your commitment to each other! Couples who spend many years together often wish to recognise significant milestones, for example significant wedding anniversaries of 10 years, 25 years, and even 50 years! A vow renewal ceremony is an opportunity for you to thank and congratulate each other, reflect on your journey together and plan for the one ahead.
If you have a child who is approaching a milestone birthday, honour him or her with a special ceremony. Whether you consider ages 13, 15, 16, 18 or 21 as the significant transition towards adulthood, it is important to mark a rite of passage. A milestone ceremony can also mark important celebrations in adult life, such as a significant birthday or special wedding anniversary.
Planning to move? Beginnings in your home can mean more than calling the moving van! Changing homes means a new adventure is starting. So gather your family and friends. Start this new cycle of your life by celebrating with a house warming ceremony.
